Two men were arrested last night after they tried to involve an unmarked Police car in a race on the M1.

The incident took place at around 11.30pm near Loughborough. The men were driving a BMW when the incident occurred.

Officers described it as the “fail of the week”.

One driver – a 22-year-old – was arrested for testing positive for cannabis. Another, a 23-year-old, was charged with a number of drugs and driving offences and has since been released on bail.
